This touched me...

What would you do?....you make the choice.
Don't look for a punch line, there isn't one. Read it anyway.

My question is: "Would you have made the same choice"?

At a fundraising dinner for a school that serves learning-disabled children, the father of one of the students delivered a speech that would never be forgotten by all who attended. After extolling the school and its dedicated staff, he offered a question: "When not interfered with by outside influences, everything nature does is done with perfection. Yet my son, Shay, cannot learn things as other children do. He cannot understand things as other children do. Where is the natural order of things in my son?"

The audience was stilled by the query. The father continued. "I believe that when a child like Shay, physically and mentally handicapped comes into the world, an opportunity to realize true human nature presents itself, and it comes in the way other people treat that child." Then he told the following story:

Shay and his father had walked past a park where some boys Shay knew were playing baseball. Shay asked, "Do you think they'll let me play?" Shay's father knew that most of the boys would not want someone like Shay on their team, but the father also understood that if his son were allowed to play, it would give him a much-needed sense of belonging and some confidence to be accepted by others in spite of his handicaps.

Shay's father approached one of the boys on the field and asked (not expecting much) if Shay could play.

The boy looked around for guidance and said, "We're losing by six runs and the game is in the eighth inning. I guess he can be on our team and we'll try to put him in to bat in the ninth inning." Shay struggled over to the team's bench and, with a broad smile, put on a team shirt.

His Father watched with a small tear in his eye and warmth in his heart. The boys saw the father's joy at his son being accepted. In the bottom of the eighth inning, Shay's team scored a few runs but was still behind by three. In the top of the ninth inning, Shay put on a glove and played in the right field. Even though no hits came his way, he was obviously ecstatic just to be in the game and on the field, grinning from ear to ear as his father waved to him from the stands.

In the bottom of the ninth inning, Shay's team scored again. Now, with two outs and the bases loaded, the potential winning run was on base and Shay was scheduled to be next at bat.

At this juncture, do they let Shay bat and give away their chance to win the game? Surprisingly, Shay was given the bat. Everyone knew that a hit was all but impossible because Shay didn't even know how to hold the bat properly, much less connect with the ball.

However, as Shay stepped up to the plate, the pitcher, recognizing that the other team was putting winning aside for this moment in Shay's life, moved in a few steps to lob the ball in softly so Shay could at least make contact. The first pitch came and Shay swung clumsily and missed. The pitcher again took a few steps forward to toss the ball softly towards Shay. As the pitch came in, Shay swung at the ball and hit a slow ground ball right back to the pitcher. The game would now be over.

The pitcher picked up the soft grounder and could have easily thrown the ball to the first baseman. Shay would have been out and that would have been the end of the game. Instead, the pitcher threw the ball right over the first baseman's head, out of reach of all team mates. Everyone from the stands and both teams started yelling, "Shay, run to first! Run to first!" Never in his life had Shay ever run that far, but he made it to first base. He scampered down the baseline, wide-eyed and startled. Everyone yelled, "Run to second, run to second!"

Catching his breath, Shay awkwardly ran towards second, gleaming and struggling to make it to the base. By the time Shay rounded towards second base, the right fielder had the ball ... the smallest guy on their team who now had his first chance to be the hero for his team. He could have thrown the ball to the second-baseman for the tag, but he understood the pitcher's intentions so he, too, intentionally threw the ball high and far over the third-baseman's head.

Shay ran toward third base deliriously as the runners ahead of him circled the bases toward home. All were screaming, "Shay, Shay, Shay, all the Way Shay" Shay reached third base because the opposing shortstop ran to help him by turning him in the direction of third base, and shouted, "Run to third! Shay, run to third!" As Shay rounded third, the boys from both teams, and the spectators, were on their feet screaming, "Shay, run home! Run home!" Shay ran to home, stepped on the plate, and was cheered as the hero who hit the grand slam and won the game for his team.

"That day", said the father softly with tears now rolling down his face, "the boys from both teams helped bring a piece of true love and humanity into this world". Shay didn't make it to another summer. He died that winter, having never forgotten being the hero and making his father so happy, and coming home and seeing his Mother tearfully embrace her little hero of the day!

AND NOW A LITTLE FOOTNOTE TO THIS STORY: We all send thousands of jokes through the e-mail without a second thought, but when it comes to sending messages about life choices, people hesitate. The crude, vulgar, and often obscene pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion about decency is too often suppressed in our schools and workplaces. If you're thinking about forwarding this message, chances are that you're probably sorting out the people in your address book who aren't the "appropriate" ones to receive this type of message. Well, the person who sent you this believes that we all can make a difference. We all have thousands of opportunities every single day to help realize the "natural order of things."

So many seemingly trivial interactions between two people present us with a choice: Do we pass along a little spark of love and humanity or do we pass up those opportunities and leave the world a little bit colder in the process?

A wise man once said every society is judged by how it treats it's least fortunate amongst them.

You now have two choices:

1. Delete
2. Forward

May your day, be a Shay Day.

Makes you think doesn't it. Please post your comments

Affiliate Marketing is TOO Expensive

Far too many subscribers are still under the impression that running a business on the internet costs too much. I really don't agree and my guest article today covers that point with some great examples...

Affiliate Marketing is TOO Expensive

I once got an email from a gentleman who asserted that affiliate marketing as a business simply wasn't for him.

Because it is too expensive!
Huh? Too expensive?
WHAT's too expensive?

Let's assume that because he sent an email, he already has the basic equipment and software that he needs to start an affiliate marketing business - that being a computer, email software and an Internet connection. I'll also assume that he has a desk on which to store that stuff, a chair on which to perch and a telephone line. Nothing extra to buy or lease there.

Perhaps it was the huge initial outlay of $8.95 at godaddy.com to register a domain name? He must have overlooked the discount. You can save two bucks a year when you register for ten years in advance. That's got to be it.

Then again, there are those ongoing monthly $9.95 web hosting and $17.95 autoresponder charges. That's $27.90 a month.

Yup, that's pretty steep. (Sheesh.)

What about all those products to buy and stock?

Oh ya, you don't have to buy SONY's TV's or Dell's computers to sell them as an affiliate. Not having to buy them will also save a big chunk of change in storage fees at the warehouse as well.

Hmmm.... that ALSO means that as an affiliate, you don't have to ship those heavy items.

Actually, those affiliated merchants are pretty good guys all around. Not only don't you have to buy, store or ship the product, you also don't need to deal with those pesky customers. Just send them from your site to the merchant's site, and the company will handle all the sales details. They'll take the customers' money, figure out your share and send you a check.

Pretty sweet deal.

Maybe it was the cost to build a web site that bothered him. Yes, graphics programs and HTML editor software can get pretty expensive, but there are plenty of low and no-cost options available. If building the site yourself proves too time-consuming, there are also excellent graphic designers who sell beautifully designed web site templates for less than twenty bucks.

Oh, I know! It must have been the cost to advertise. Hmmm... the last time I checked one of those national magazines, it cost about $1200 to get a 1/12th of a page ad in black and white. Your ad could be seen by up to three quarters of a million people. But how many of those readers would actually be interested in your message?

By contrast, that $1200 could buy up to 120,000 clicks from a targeted audience on the Internet. What method do you think would be more worthwhile in terms of return?

Furthermore, when you use Internet pay per click advertising, you don't have to spend the whole $1200 in one shot. You could try a $50 test ad. Analyze your ROI, return on investment. If it's not satisfactory,rework your ad and try another test. In the worst case scenario, you'll gain a few subscribers to your newsletter to whom you can promote other products later.

I personally work and rework my ads and aim for a 100% return on my advertising investment. Where else are you going to get that kind of return on your money nowadays?

The stock market? Your bank account? The race track? The latter probably has the best odds of the three.

OK, so let's do a tally to see how much, or how little, it could cost to start an affiliate marketing business on the Internet.

The expenses are as follows:
domain $8.95,
hosting $9.95,
web site template $14.95
and $100.00 for a test ad.

Total outlay for the first month equals $133.85. Assuming a 100% return on your advertising investment, you'll have earned $200.00.

In the first month you'd already be in the black - $66.15 richer.

Affiliate marketing on the Internet is one of the least costly businesses to start, and one of the very few that contains the possibility of profit in the first month.

If a C-note is too big an investment in a business that has brought financial freedom to thousands, then perhaps it's best to stick with 'the day job'.

And, I didn't even touch on all the money and time you'll save by working at home.

Next time.

I think it is vital that we are realistic.

There really is no such thing as a worthwhile business where you do not need to spend anything. The most important point is to make sure that the money is spent on the right things. Cheap isn't always best but on the internet it pays to be careful. How many products are set at $997 etc. Are they really worth that?

There are many, many great products and services available for nothing and low cost.

Rosalind mentions autoresponders and HTML editors as two potential expenses.

I will post articles on both in due course but in case you can't wait I strongly recommend the following:

Autoresponder: AWeber - probably the best Autoresponder service available.

Unlimited  Autoresponders by AWeber

HTML Editor: Nvu - fully featured and really simple to use AND it's free!

Made with Nvu

In keeping with my theme that an affiliate business is not TOO expensive - here is a brilliant FREE resource. Starting from scratch these videos will show you exactly how to register a domain name, set up and build a mini sales site - even if you know absolutely nothing about starting a web based business.

"Do It Now" - go to MiniSitesSecrets

Sorry if I've overloaded you today - but I can't resist providing you with such low cost, relevant information - all without the usual hype.

Until next time

Good fortune

It Borders Criminal Activity...

OK, that's a bit strong.

But over the past 3-4 weeks I've been working away at my desk and the number of emails I've received selling me this or that new program that I simply MUST have or I may as well give up my business is beyond belief.

What makes it worse is that most of the emails come from the same group of "gurus". My respect for these guys is dropping by the minute.

I had believed some of these guys really did care about helping the newbie get started but now I'm not so sure. They all seem to be promoting each others program, product or seminar and are offering sweeteners from "far too many bonuses to look at during a lifetime" to even "diamonds"!

My view is quite simple - YOU DO NOT NEED ALL OF THIS STUFF.

It sits on your shelf or hard drive rotting away and you don't even look at it.

When you are starting out you just need a strategy: be that as an affiliate (as you know my favorite); creator of your own product or service or Adsense site promoter.

To be successful you MUST NOT flit from one idea to another. You need to look at yourself first and decide that you will "Do It Now". If you are not prepared to "change" and do something different and now, not tomorrow, not next week not never - surprise, surprise nothing will change.

Having decided, you'll need to select a program and focus on that and nothing else. Sure, you'll need some extra tools, some help with traffic building, help with list building and copy perhaps but you will not need piles of different programs and ideas cluttering up the place.

Let me know what you REALLY think and what you REALLY need to move to the next stage - whatever level you're at right now.

Good fortune

Can I Make Money Online?

Over the past few weeks many of you have commented "It's alright for the gurus but can I make any money online"?

Without a doubt the answer is yes and today I have an article for you from Rosalind Gardner who has made a fortune by promoting other peoples' products on line.

She has been an inspiration to me and if you take my advice and "Do It Now" I'm sure you too will get great benefit for your business from her words...

As an Internet marketing consultant, I often hear the question, "Can I REALLY make money online with affiliate programs?"

To me, that question speaks of the asker's skepticism, so let's put aside any question of whether money is REALLY being made online before we look any further.

Thousands of merchants have put resources into developing affiliate programs so that others can promote their products in exchange for a commission, which is usually a percentage of the product's price. If there wasn't money to be made, Sony, Dell and those thousands of other merchants wouldn't waste their time and money building affiliate programs.

I personally know at least a hundred people who make marketing on the Internet their full-time occupation. If there wasn't money to be made, that wouldn't be possible.

I am one of those people. The secondary title of my ebook about affiliate marketing is 'How I Made $436,797 Last Year Selling Other People's Stuff Online'. Although I dislike that subtitle and its crass approach, it IS the truth, and it IS effective proof that money can be made online.

The statement is backed up on the Super Affiliate Handbook homepage with a picture of part of my income tax statement from 2002 which shows my earnings.

See it for yourself at:

So, having dispelled any question about whether there is money to be made online, let's proceed to the REAL question.

Let's take the emphasis off the word 'REALLY' and place it where it belongs - on YOU.

Can YOU really make money online?

Sure you can! IF you REALLY want to.

Desire is the first key to success. But here's where it gets a little tricky. If your desire is for money, as opposed to what money can buy, your work will be made much harder, if not impossible.

'Huh? Why is that?' you may wonder.

Money is a concept. In and of itself it does nothing for you, unless you are very fond of small rectangular pieces of colored paper.

If you focus instead on the good that money will bring to your life, such as free time and all the fun ways to spend it, then you'll give positive direction to your efforts.

Think about it.. what can that money buy you? The kids' education, a new car, a new house, a second honeymoon... how about a sailboat?

Dream a little - dream a LOT, but create some desire, and a REASON to work hard for what you want to achieve.

And that's the second key to making money online - Work.

Too many people still hold on to the notion of 'get rich quick'. I've got news for them - there's no such thing. You can get rich a little quicker on the 'net, but the truth is that nothing worth having comes without a price. You must invest some time and money.

Not much money, but some. Compared to starting any other business, the amount of financial investment required to start an affiliate marketing business on the Internet is negligible. If you don't have one or two hundred bucks - or can't beg, borrow or steal that amount - then maybe you can get a part-time job and save up to start your online business.

No matter how you slice it, you won't find another opportunity anywhere that has the potential for this much reward for so little outlay. This IS one of the least expensive businesses you can start.

Last but not least - can you stick with it over the longhaul?

Persistence is perhaps the MOST important quality shared by all entrepreneurs. That's why you hear about those who make a million, lose a million and then make another million. They go up, then down, then up again, but they never gave up.

You can't let the ups and downs get to you. Not everything will go your way all of the time. You'll have to make some effort and it won't always be easy.

But, if you keep your goals foremost in your mind, learn what you need to know and invest your resources wisely and with persistence, you virtually can't help but succeed.

That's how you REALLY make money online!

I have always wondered what it is that holds human beings back from their true potential. I've done it myself - bought the course; learnt the stuff; told myself this was the one... then not taken the necessary action.

Is it fear? or not being sure what step to take? or being happy with the current situation?

I'm not really sure but the more I mix with successful people the more I hear that they expect something less than 5% of the people who buy anything to do with money making to actually do anything with it.

Don't be caught in that trap - go on - "Do It Now". It only take a little each day to make a real improvement. Commit to doing something each and every day that will move you towards your goal.

Until next time

Top 10 Reasons to be an Affiliate

Top 10 Reasons to Become an Affiliate Marketer

I'm delighted to have reached agreement with Rosalind Gardner to be able to publish here some of her articles on affiliate marketing. She is without doubt one of THE most successful affiliate marketers and I love her hype-free style.

Back when my online business consisted ONLY of affiliate sites, I had no need for a personal assistant.

The sites were all in place, and my affiliated merchants handled everything related to orders.

Last week, one of my clients mentioned that he was moving AWAY from selling his own products to promoting more affiliate programs just for the simplicity and freedom.

Yup, he definitely 'gets' it.

Although there are many, many benefits to promoting affiliate programs with your own home-based Internet business, here are my top 10 reasons to become an affiliate marketer.

1. No Product Development Costs - The cost to develop and produce a new product is expensive! But you needn't worry about that as an affiliate.

2. Low Cost Set-up - Got a desk, Internet-connected computer and word-processing software? You're in business!

3. No Fees or Geographic Limits on Distribution - Affiliate programs are usually free to join, and market reach is limited only by the affiliate's ability to promote his other web site.

4. Choose From Thousands of Products and Services - What isn't sold online? With affiliate networks like CommissionJunction, Be Free and Linkshare, it's easy to find products related to your current or planned web site.

5. No Merchant Account Required - Forget the problems associated with collecting and storing names, addresses, credit card numbers, etc. The merchant handles all payment processing, so you never have to lose sleep over chargebacks, fraud or losing your merchant account.

6. No Inventory to Carry - Even if you live in a small one-bedroom apartment, you can sell large items without storage concerns.

7. No Shipping Costs - Don't worry about buying packing supplies or postal rates. The cost and hassle to prepare and ship products to customers worldwide belongs to the merchant.

8. No Customer Concerns - Do you hate the prospect of dealing with nasty people? Don't worry about it! The merchant handles the snivelers.

9. Make Money While You Sleep - What other business allows you as a sole proprietor to keep your doors open and keep making money even when you take breaks or after you go home for the night?

10. High Income Potential - With your own affiliate business your income potential is limited only by your desire, effort and imagination - not your boss.
Relatively low outlay of resources with huge potential returns truly makes affiliate marketing on the Internet an outstanding business opportunity.

Rosalind is without doubt someone who really understands the affiliate business. Her information is honest and straightforward. I'll be bringing more information from Rosalind in future issues.

Until next time.

"Nobody got anywhere in the world by simply being content."

Louis L'Amour

I like that quote. In my opinion the day you become content is the day you give up living.


How did you got on with the website building videos I provided last time?

Haven't got them yet? They're still available for you - the package is worth $427 and it's yours just because you receive WizzerNews. It will cost you nothing and whatever stage you are at with your business I'm sure you'll find them of great use.

Get them now at Video Download

You'll need to enter the secret code into the Promotional Code field. Simply enter the following code and follow the instructions:



OK, back to today.You'll remember we last talked about finding the "thirsty" crowd. In other words the market into which you will throw your business. Have you identified yours yet? This is a really important stage and you must do two things:

  1. Make sure the crowd is thirsty - if they're not you are likely to struggle selling them anything

  2. Make sure you have a real interest in the market - if you don't you'll find it difficult to keep motivated
Now you'll need to identify whether there really is a big thirsty market in your chosen field. You'll also need to think about the level of competition.

By the way, have you ever been to a city where there seems to be hundreds of shops next to each other all selling the same things? I used to think those business people were mad. With all that competition how could they possibly make a living.

But then after a while it sinks in. They've identified a thirsty crowd and are simply providing what that crowd wants. Undoubtedly some will be more successful than others. Why is that? Is it they're cheaper, more expensive, better service, better sales people, better location?

I think the answer may be a combination of all of those but probably more to do with making themselves a little different.

I visited Venice in Italy earlier this year and there were small stalls selling exactly the same souvenirs everywhere. Eventually I convinced myself I needed something they were selling and chose something from the stall where the guy was most helpful and was interested in me rather than what he was selling.

The lesson is to focus on the customer and not the sale. Sure enough if you care about your customers the sales will come.

Some resources for you to check out the potential of your chosen market:

Each time you refresh your browser you will see the recent items people have been looking to buy. If any of those product fits with your chosen market you could be on to a winner.

Pixelfast Overture
This site will show you the demand for a particular word, try entering - computer - for example. Apart from that word other related words and phrases people are searching on will be shown with the relevant number of searches. Again if the numbers are high it could be an indication of a good vibrant market. On the left side of the page you will also see the price advertisers are bidding for particular keywords. (More on this in later editions).

So, you should think of some relevant keywords relating to your market and enter them into the Keyword Tool to see what level of demand (number of searches) for that particular word.

For a much more in-depth study of this whole issue I strongly recommend you take a good look at the business building service over at The Complete Website Business at Sitesell. This really is so much more than just a web hosting service, it includes a full explanation of choosing a niche, researching that niche, identifying keywords, building a site using those keywords all very easy to understand and simple to do. There is extensive help and a wide range of case studies covering all sorts of markets. I really cannot recommend this high enough as a starting point.

I'm in the process of building a site using Sitesell relating to a property project I have in Europe - take a look at Frontline Golf

Don't forget if there is anything particular you want me to cover in future issues simply answer my question at: Survey

WIZZER NEWS - General developments

Sorry about this but I'm just going negative for a while.

I'm kicking myself right now for getting taken in time and time again by all the hype!! This week I must have had at least 10, yes TEN, internet marketing "guru's" telling me how this one particular program they've been using has changed their lives and I must go and get it.

In this case I actually know the guy who created this particular project and I'll be really surprised if anyone else had heard about the product more than a few days ago. So how has the use of this thing changed their lives in such a short time?

Am I the only mug who believes this stuff?

I'm all for promoting good products that really will help - it's the lies and the extreme hype I can't take. Let me know what you think mailto:wizzer@wealth-vault.com

WIZZER REFLECTIONS - My personal thoughts

I've been too busy with "stuff" over the past few weeks to play any golf and to make things worse I haven't made the time for any serious exercise.

I know this is bad for me and whenever I take time out to properly exercise I feel more alive and motivated to get things done. I wish I really understood what makes us do the wrong things even when we know what we should be doing.

If you have an answer to that one I'd really love to hear from you -
email me

Until next time

So to help you with this challenge I've got a great set of videos that will not only show you how to create a website but will show you how to set it up to ensure you make money.

This really is a fantastic set of videos you can download to your PC and watch whenever you want. The instructions are so clear anyone can follow. Everything you need is included. Where to get the software you need, how to do it, and more importantly it won't cost you a thing!

There really is no catch, just some great material for you to work through over the next few days.

You'll need to concentrate on these videos for a while so that's all for today.

Let me know if you have any problems with the download.

To your success

I hope you have given some thought to the points raised in my last update. If so then you will remember I urged you to:

"Decide what you want your life to look like and build your work around that".

Just to recap very briefly.

I do not have a get rich quick "opportunity" or solution. What I do have is some solid, practical advice as to how you can make some changes to your life and earn a good level of income (whatever that means to you personally). I'll give you the benefit of my experience and let you know what works and what doesn't and in particular the things you really must avoid.

As we progress over the coming weeks I'll provide you with details of the services that have worked for me and the facilities I use. I'll let you see a case study of a site I run that ticks along with minimal work from me.

So let's start today with what I call the "ideal business".

OK - I know the ideal business is one where you do absolutely nothing yet the money rolls in everyday. Since that isn't very likely, at least while you are awake :) I'll go into what I think would make the ideal business in the real world.

I've experienced running several real world businesses and the list of problems they present is frightening. You spend most of your time dealing with this "stuff" and very little working on the business.

My conclusion is, therefore, that the ideal business should avoid the following as far as possible:

  • Business premises

  • Staff

  • Stock or inventory

  • Credit Card merchant facilities

  • Product fulfillment - leading to customer queries

  • Long working hours

So what does that leave us with?

  • Work from home (or anywhere you chose)

  • No need to recruit or rely on anyone else. Just you to answer to

  • Sell someone else's product or service

  • Let that someone take care of the sale process - collect money, ship goods, provide service

  • Work to the level you choose - spare time / full time as you please

Is that possible? Could you build a business like that?

The answer is a categoric "YES". Most certainly you can do it.

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the ideal business is to become an affiliate for somebody else's product(s) or service(s). The only question that has to be answered is what product or service are you going to provide?

I'll be going into affiliate marketing in more detail in my next update but for today I want you to think very carefully about the question above - "what product or service"

This question is critical to your success. If you get this wrong you'll waste your time, lose interest, have no success and ultimately give up.

Most people when they start a business chose to do what they already do but for themselves.

For example a hairdresser decides to open a salon because he or she is particularly good at cutting hair. It doesn't mean they'll be good at running a business.

A plumber or carpenter is disillusioned with the "boss" getting all of the profit from their hard work and decides to go it alone. Now instead of just the trade they have marketing, invoicing, accounts, staff, stock issues to deal with.

These people have simply traded their boss for a new one. But does the new one have the same abilities as the old one? Maybe in certain areas but in running the business? And what about the extra time spent doing all the extra tasks?

I know, I've done this. It looks exciting to start with but over time the extra jobs that can only get done late at night when the real work is done get to you. It's stressfull, tiring and you get to a point where you really wish you'd never started the business.

But what if there was a different way?

What would be the most obvious starting point when deciding what business to go into?

I'd say it was to find a market FULL of people already looking for a product or service.

Once you've found that market it is a straightforward task to fulfill the requirements of those people.

Do you think it would be difficult to sell water to a bus load of people stranded in the desert? Of course it wouldn't.

So the first step is to find a market and then decide on the product or service to meet their needs. If that market is in an area where you have a particular skill or interest so much the better. You already have a head start over most other people as you'll have a good idea what others with a similar interest will be looking for.

I suggest you start by making a list of the things you are particularly interested in. Does anything jump out at you as being a likely good business?

You will almost certainly have heard the term "niche marketing". Simply put this means marketing your particular product or service to people within that "niche".

For example, if you happen to be an expert in tying flies, your niche market may well be fly fishing. Your task is now is to find suitable products for this market and work out whether you could make the money you require from this business.

Don't forget, you won't have to produce the product, you simply find someone else who has already done so and will be happy to pay you for making a sale of their product. Next time I'll be going over ways of identifying whether there really is good potential in your chosen area and how to source suitable products.

WIZZER NEWS - General developments

I'm reviewing a number of products or tools at the moment that promise to be a great help with my business and possibly yours if you decide to follow in my footsteps. I'll be reporting on these in future editions of WizzerNews. You should know, however, that I report on these things as I find them. If there are limitations or problems I'll let you know what they are and will only recommend something I've reviewed and tried in my business with some success.

WIZZER REFLECTIONS - My personal thoughts

I've not played golf this week.Unfortunately my favorite uncle died this week. He had a stroke a few years ago that left him unable to speak and he had another a month ago leaving him virtually paralyzed. The doctors gave him no chance of really leading anything like a normal life so I guess in some ways his passing is a blessing. It's never easy though for the relatives and friends. For me it came quite hard because my own father wasn't around when I was very small and my uncle taught me to swim, took me to my first movie and was "there" for me.

Although we hadn't been particularly close in recent years a part of "me" has also passed. On an upbeat note to end, however, my eldest son will be 10 this week and an electric guitar will be finding it's way into our lives. I may live to regret the decision to buy that for his birthday - only time will tell.

Until next time

Wizzer Update 3


If you are just starting on the adventure of running your own business you will probably be going through a whole load of roller-coaster thoughts.

  • Do I intend doing a little bit of extra work to generate some more income

  • Am I really aiming at running a full time business

  • What will I do?

  • How will I do it?

  • What money will I need?

  • Who do I need to help?

  • Can I trust them?

  • What about staff or premises?

  • What about record keeping?

  • What do I do about Taxes, Compliance with laws, Incorporating... the list goes on

Whatever your plans I strongly urge you to think very carefully about the commitment you are about to undertake.

I know that might sound strange when every other email, website and so called internet marketing guru is pressurising you to "buy" something that will ensure you become rich beyond your wildest dreams.


"I've been so disatisfied with my lifestyle for the last few years, even though I've have been running my own business for 15 years, that I was on the verge of selling my home and giving up on the business because of the ridiculous time I had to devote to it and the pressure and stress I felt. I wasn't even earning masses of money to at least make it worthwhile"

Please re-read that paragraph. I don't want to put you off, quite the opposite in fact BUT I do want you to fully appreciate that if you get into the wrong business, with the wrong process and wrong mindset you are very likely to end up just like I did. Yes, that's my quote above.

Frankly, if you are thinking of setting up a business in the traditional sense then I honestly believe you need to take a very long hard look at the reality of that commitment and assess whether it will really give you the lifestyle you want.

The best advice I have ever received was this...

"Decide what you want your life to look like and build your work around that".

Think about that for a moment. If you just start a job straight from school or college before you know it you have a list of debts (credit cards, mortgage, car loan) and at the end of the day you are exhausted just looking forward to the weekend for some time to yourself.

Monday sees it all start over just so you can earn enough to get through another week.

Have you built your life or has someone else moulded it for you?

That's not living - that's surviving.

Yes, I've been there and it's depressing but here's the good news - there is one person that absolutely without question can help you get out of that situation.

That person is YOU.

There's no reliance on handouts, on the lottery, on someone else doing something for you. Or someone famous and wealthy bumping into you in the mall and deciding to leave their fortune to you. Wake up - that's not going to happen.

We all have dreams and that's a very healthy state to be in. But they must be realistic.

Only YOU can change your life.

My tag line is "Do It Now". That came about because I've had so many dreams and ideas of what to do to change my life but nothing happened. The reason was I just didn't take any action.

Finally, I realised what was holding me back. I just didn't "Do It".

In my next update I'll go into what I believe is the ideal business so that you really can build your work around your lifestyle rather than fitting your life in the time that's left over.

Your task today is to sit quietly and think very carefully about your required lifestyle. I want you to be very realistic. Write it down. Live and feel it in your mind. I'm not talking about mansions and millions of $ in the bank. That's OK if that's really what you want, but you may just be thinking about playing golf twice a week - having more time with the family – taking off for a long weekend every so often without breaking the bank to do it.Whatever you want from life get it very clear in your mind.

Work out if you are really prepared to put in the effort to make it happen. You may have to sacrifice some time to make this happen but it WILL BE WORTHWHILE in the longer term. How long will it be before you have what you want is up to you.

It really is. Only you can decide.Go on "Do It Now" make that commitment that you are going to do whatever it takes.

I'll be here with reminders and help and my experience (more about that coming soon).

WIZZER NEWS - General developments

There is an enormous amount of extra activity on the internet at the moment. Seems that summer is over and there are new product launches every day. The few months before the year end normally see a great rush of activity. I have to say some of the emails and sales letters on various websites are really compelling.

It's very easy to get carried away and think "this is the one". Just be careful. Does it really fit in with your long term plan or is it just another great idea that doesn't get the full attention it deserves and ends on the shelf with other opportunities that originally held the same promise.

I'm a great believer in focus. If you decide on something stick with it and make it work. Don't jump from one opportunity to the next. Choose what you like but make it something you can believe in and focus on making it work.

WIZZER REFLECTIONS - My personal thoughts

I work from an "office" in my home. It's a separate room in the house but lately it's been far from ideal. I have two boys, age 9 & 4 and they are far from quiet. They are both enthusiastic about everything and for some reason I have to be told virtually everything that goes on in their minds - as it happens!

Trying to work under those conditions is a real challenge. It's fine when they're at school but trying to get things done when they're around is a real challenge.
Fortunately, my business has now moved to a point where I can work around this, which a few years ago would have been impossible.

Yesterday I played golf, yes that's the cross I have to bear, and as usual I had a totally inconsistent round. If you are a golfer you may appreciate this. My official handicap is 25 (I don't enter many competitions so it doesn't change much) but I can play anywhere from about 12 to 30 over par.

So what happened yesterday? I hit two 9's on a par 4 & a par 5, which really destroyed what may have been my best ever card - 6 straight pars plus 2 more and a birdie. Oh what a game!!!

Until next time

"The biggest reason most people don't achieve the success they crave is that they simply don't take action."

If you are serious about learning how to earn an income from home or using the internet, be that a few extra $$ or ££ a week or a full time living, then I can honestly help. I, like you, have looked at how I can improve my situation and reached the conclusion that an internet based business was the answer some time ago.

Wow, despite everything the "gurus" would have me believe I struggled to start with - mainly from information overload and TOTAL confusion as to what to do first.

  • You will receive regular information, letting you know exactly what works and what doesn't.

  • Learn the best type of businesses and why.

  • Find out what to avoid and who to listen to.
